At the Fawkner Chiropractic Centre we refer out all our radiological services. The advantage for our patients is that the cost of all x-rays can be bulk billed to Medicare, so the patient is not out of pocket and the x-rays are read by an independent radiologist as well as ourselves. This adds an extra layer of checks and balances to our services.
We do on occasions refer for upright weight bearing MRI images of the spine. There are very few places were these can be taken. We have a relationship with Brighton Radiology, one of the few radiology centres in Melbourne to be able to take these images. As with most MRI 's their cost is not covered by Medicare.
